I’ve searched a lot of threads with people asking if they should join italki, but I don’t see a lot of people recommending actual teachers. I see a lot of people just referring to ‘my teacher’ in their posts.
I was hoping people who use italki and have a teacher they like could post about their teacher, if they are a community tutor or ceritified teacher, the level they’re helping you with, and what they’re doing that you like. I think it’d be cool to have a resource where people who are wanting to find an italki teacher will have more of a first hand recommendation. And to give more direction to people who want to use italki but don’t know a good way to practice with a teacher.
I know there’s reviews on the actual site, but they’re usually not really in depth, and I even give perfect reviews for less than perfect lessons because I feel bad leaving anything less than 5. Haha. So I feel like if someone is recommending someone here then they must really like that teacher.
Edit: I have lessons planned with a handful of different teachers in the next week, so I’ll report back as well if I find a teacher I really like.
